Creators Dick Wolf, Derek Haas, Michael Brandt, and Matt Olmstead bring an exciting and energetic old-school cop show in ‘Chicago P.D.’ The show is part of Dick Wolf’s sprawling ‘Chicago’ franchise and a spin-off of ‘Chicago Fire.’ The police procedural series revolves around the daily proceedings of officers and detectives of the 21st District of the Chicago Police Department.

Chicago P.D. Season 9 Episode 1 Spoilers
In the two-part epic that puts a tense season 8 to an end, we see Burgess fighting for her life after a clash with villainous criminals. Following the cliffhanger ending of the eighth season, fans are eager to find closure as the upcoming season dawns upon us. Hopefully, the season will pick the story up from the devastating and tense ending of the previous season, and we are already hinted that we shall meet Burgess again. So, she is rescued after all, and she is putting up a great fight. However, will she be able to defeat death this time?
In all probability, the inaugural episode of the ninth season will shed some light on the officer’s fate, and it could be that the character dies in this season (and we have good reasons to think so; the episode title is ‘Closure’ after all). However, the team will give their everything and more to locate her kidnappers. Voight will team up with Upton, and he may get back to his old ways. Veering off the expected path, Samantha may finally identify her son’s assailant and get some closure. Whatever it may be, you should brace yourselves for a topsy-turvy season.
